Mission Statement

We are a people who tell stories in one form or another.
After all isn't blogging just another way to gather around and tell those stories?

Motherhood is Painless is about finding the humor in the every day. In finding the happiness in those stories that we tell. What would happen if we *all* learned to laugh at ourselves? Maybe then the dark corners would recede a bit and we would all rejoice at the love we find there.

#3 Sunday Stuff

1. My finger is much better, despite the bruise that runs from the outside edge by the first knuckle, diagonally across to the top of the fingernail. Bah. Stupid car.

2. Kids were up early, but not unreasonably so. I think it was 6, instead of 6:30. But I woke up with a cold and headache, so as you can imagine, I am super fun to be around.

3. We had a fun day yesterday - Dave took the kids to LegoLand in the morning, and I took myself to the spa for a facial. It was last minute - but totally relaxing, even if it took me an hour to get there.

4. Claire had Daisy Scouts yesterday and while she was reluctant to go, she had lots of fun. (This is pretty de rigueur for her. She hates the idea of the meetings.) We had a field trip organized to the Queens Botanical Gardens, and had a class about the plants we eat. We saw the Gardens' beehives, herb garden and then went into a classroom, where the girls talked about the parts of plants, and which fruits and vegetables were different parts. While that was going on, Ben was scooting around with Dave.

5. We are almost 100% stroller free. In the last week, Ben decided that he's done with the damn thing. Instead, he wants to scoot. All over the place, at top speed. As in, I'm barely off the curb and he's heading for the next corner, dodging around pedestrians right and left.

6. Today is laundry, then a birthday party, followed by dinner and baths. And drinking lots of tea and water, hoping to flush this cold out of my system.

So sorry to hear about your finger! I hope you also are able to shake the crud quickly.

E is going through a thing similar to Claire. She keeps pitching a fit about ballet/dance class. But once she is there, she loves it and can't wait to go again. Until the day she is going. The session runs through Dec. 9th. Not sure if we are going to renew for next session if this is going to be an issue... (Also not sure given the whole moving thing if we can swing it again next session.)

Glad you got some spa time! I am jealous. I would kill for some solo time.
